Very interesting indeed. There is a wide range of services that end customers currently purchase either directly from independent suppliers or through agencies that could benefit from a similar disruptive technology. This applies to any profession or activity with freelancers and micro-enterprises at the bottom of the pyramid. All the efforts that I'm aware of to date have been based on "bottom feeder" strategies and high short-term profits, not on optimal service, improved conditions, greater transparency, efficient info feedback, and so forth.
